*Claudio Rodríguez. Casi una leyenda. 1991. 86 pp.

I was writing my dissertation, you see, and Claudio told me he had this book coming out. But this was in the mid 1980s and I couldn't wait for it to appear to finish. It didn't come out until 1991, a year after my book on Claudio appeared. So I kind of have a love/hate relationship to this book. It took me a while to realize it's fantastically good, not just a repetition of the previous Claudio books. Probably because I resented its delayed publication so much.
